Hi! I'm Amanda and I'm from Cincinnati, OH. I'm new here and I just received my first reborn, Charlotte.

I have an issue with Charlotte and I want to know if fixing is possible. Firstly, I'm not sure if she's actually a reborn. I bought her on eBay and they said she was a reborn. She is an Ashton Drake doll and I didn't know that until she arrived at my house. However, the biggest problem is her arms. I was told she had 3/4 arms, but she has 1/2 arms.

I was wondering if this could be fixed. I know this would mean a new cloth body and completely new arms which probably won't be painted exactly the same way. At this point I don't care, I just want her to have 3/4 arms.

An Ashton Drake is not a reborn, it is a factory manufactured doll and I am almost 100% sure that you would be happier with 1/2 arms that are the right color than with 3/4 arms that are the wrong color. Why don't you sell her and buy a reborn which is more to your taste. Be sure and read carefully and look carefully at all the pictures. Good luck.

Hi ,welcome to REAL!  welcome :real: I agree about the Ashton Drake,I would leave that one as is and try to look for one with the 3/4 or full limbs. Glad you could join us! bigsmile  Kathy

I had an Aston Drake Emmy which I paid a lady to reborn for me, she purchased new limbs
and a cloth body was added, she matched the head and limbs perfectly. This is not a cheap
option but well worth it if you love the one you have. these Ashdon Drake dolls are filled with
all sorts of rubbish too. sand stones unbelieable what came out of the original body.
